Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
Los Angeles urologist Kiarash Michel, MD, has been named one of Southern California’s Super Doctors for 2014, making it the fifth consecutive year he has been awarded the honor.
“Being recognized as a Super Doctor is always an incredible honor, and this year is no exception,” says Dr. Michel. “I’m lucky to have such wonderful colleagues, staff, and patients. Without them, this wouldn’t be possible.”
The number of doctors who receive the Super Doctor award is limited to approximately five percent of the region’s active physicians. Each year, Key Professional Media undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area and a good-standing and disciplinary check. As a part of this evaluation, physicians are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following practice areas, which doctor would you choose?”
“This award is an enormous honor, and I’m grateful to have been recognized for five years in a row,” says Dr. Michel. “At Comprehensive Urology, we work hard to provide patients with incredible help and support, and I’m happy to see that we’ve made a great impression on others.”
